Man who caused court security scare to face Magistrate today

The man who attempted to enter the District “A” Magistrates’ Court in Bridgetown with a loaded gun on Thursday, causing a security scare, is due to appear in that same court today.

Shaquille Rachid Greenidge, 21, of Tudor Street, The City, is charged with unlawful possession of a firearm; illegal possession of ammunition; assaulting a Government security guard and illegal possession of cannabis.

The charges arise from Thursday’s incident that has forced the authorities to beef up security procedures at the District “A” Magistrates’ Court.

He faces a fifth charge of assaulting a prison officer in an unrelated matter.

    What are those in authority doing who would wait until something like this happen to play that they beefing up security. There are some other seriously weak points all over Barbados. It is just a matter of time and considering the bad example set by persons in society who should know better, anything can happen. A lot of the people in decision making positions do not have a clue what is happening at the grass roots level and I am not talking about the Politicians only, I am speaking about those who are paid from the public purse who are only drawing salaries, allowances, per diems, and not giving enough because they do not know how because they are followers and not problem solvers but creators of problems. The Government of the day has to take the ultimate responsiblity , however.

    We are so educated , as to what this education has done , to and for us we need educating to understand.. we still have to depend on outsiders to come and keep some control of our island ,

    ( A Nation at war with itself), we as a people cannot even have a debate about the failings of our island ,because we cannot determine which page or paragraph of failures we should start from , or who to direct the questions to…

    Nothing works because no one seems to even try the worst things against the problems we encounter , everything seems to be over the people heads who in management .. Barbados is like a ship with out a rudder..

    A few years ago when Woggie Clarke jumped out of the Court windo and escape via that gate that leads to Tudor Street, i made some Comments, and was soundly demonised for trying to bring things to Barbados that were NOT Bajan, If my suggestions were tken seriously, that Guy with the Gun and Three Clips of Ammunition, would not even ahve been able to get as far as he got.
    My Suggestions were:-
    All prisoners who are being brought to those Courts, should make their entrance into the court via a COVERED entrance way that the vehicle carrying them Back right up to, so no one can see when they enter or Leave.
    They should ALWAYS be Shackled, and Handcuffed.
    NO Persons EXCEPT TWO family Members (Selected by the Family) will be allowed into the Court Yard. Viewers have NO RIGHTS to being in That Courtyard.
    People that are Witnesses, will only be admitted if they carry their Summons with them, if they don’t have it, send them back home to get it, and Notify the Court from the Gate (Communications by Cellphone)
    A lot of these transgressors are bolstered by the Crowds who show up and wave them on.

    Thank God and our Lucky Stars, that this Guy was accosted by the Security Guard, because he was not properly attired for Court (Short Pants)

    A LOADED GUN and two spare clips, People were about to Die.

    Good points Tony
    I must add that the Government of the day must take the blame.
    What are they waiting for
    The Government of the day seems impotent. If you rent a house from someone , are you going to say that the previous OCCUPANTS should have , could have would have done this or that to the House. You ARE IN THE HOUSE NOW!!
    The Government of the day must act and any mealy mouthed flea infested mongrel and yarduck -yardfowl
    cannot dispute that.
